Special thanks to Al and Jean Knapik for their generous donations to the auction that helped make the event a success and to Norbert and Hattie for their help in getting everything setup for the reunion.

24TH REUNION OF THE SNIDER FAMILY OF ROBERTSON COUNTY

The 24th reunion of the Snider Family of Robertson County was held on Saturday, July 26, 2008 at St. Mary's Recreational Hall in Bremond Texas.


The reunion was dedicated to the last surviving member of the Mike Snider family, Louis Snider and his wife Natalie


(Louis Snider, his beautiful wife, Natalie and grand-daughter Katie)

...... and to all deceased members of the Mike Snider family marking 135 years ago that the Thomas Snider (Suchowiak)family came to America from a farming hamlet called Sarbia in Polish Prussia.

Thomas and Balbina Suchowiak, Lewis Snider's grandparents, had 10 children including our reunion namesake, Mike Snider. My mother, Connie Snider Kubiak remembered Tom and Balbina as very happy and sharing people who lived near the town of Wootan Wells and often went into Bremond with their horse and buggy.
My grandfather, Mike Snider, was born in Wootan Wells on September 10, 1882 (over 115 years ago). Mike married Veronica Grudziecki on November 15, 1906 and they had eight children:

John Snider, deceased
Willie Snider Storemski, deceased
Bill Snider, deceased
Connie Snider Kubiak, deceased
Bruno Snider, deceased
Christine Snider Knapik, deceased
Louis Snider ( Born November 14, 1925)
Lee Snider, deceased


The Saturday reunion was a fun filled event with great food and deserts and plenty of time for visiting, bidding on the silent auction items and the main auction (many thanks to all that donated gifts for the auctions and raffles)and everyone had a great time. Uncle Louis and Aunt Natalie, still a handsome couple at their age, were in great spirits and Uncle Louis entertained us with stories of his childhood and later attributed his good health to a great wife and excellent doctors. He recalled Natalie's 90+ mile per hour dash to the hospital during a heart attack and good work on the part of doctors to restore him to excellent health.

Many thanks to Evelyn for all her coordination work and to Norbert and Hattie for arranging for the hall and providing his famous Polish sausage, to Kathy Penick for her generous donation of food from the Coalmine Restaurant, to Marilyn Snider, Jenny Kubiak, Lynda Kubiak and others who worked in the kitchen to make the reunion dinner a success.



Local business owners and elected public officials were there including Sheriff Yezak and his family, Al and Jean Knapik, owners of the Dry Bean Saloon, Cathy and Jim Penick, owners of the Coalmine Restaurant, and Norbert and Hattie Snider, owners of the local barber shop , and Mark and Mike Snider, Houston area firemen and Louis Snider, retired fireman from Houston were all there. I even saw former State Representative, L.B. Kubiak weilding a broom. L.B. was recently names as one of the outstanding Rockdale footbale players of the past being inducted into the Rockdale Hall of Fame this fall.

Every Mike Snider family was represented at the reunion. Al Snider provided the Polka music via his CD collection, and many Snider family members donated to the reunion financially through thir generous donations of gifts and generous spirited bidding on auction items. And many members got a cutting from Connie Snider Kubiaks mystery flowering plant that still grows abundantly on the Kubiak farm.

SNIDER FAMILY NEWS FROM 2007

LINDA KNAPIK FUNERAL

Linda Knapik, wife of Raymond Knapik, died on July 21, 2007 at the age of 57 in Hearne Texas. Funeral services for Linda Knapik were held July 26, 2007, at Gause, Texas, at the Full Gospel Church.

CHRISTINE SNIDER


Christine Snider Knapik died Sunday, December 10, at approximately 1:00 PM of heart complications and passed away peacefully during the ambulance ride to the hospital. Christine was present at all family events and will be missed by us all.

EULOGY OF CHRISTINE SNIDER KNAPIK (June 24, 1921- December 10, 2006) Prepared by nephew, Leonard Kubiak of Rockdale.

Aunt Christine was a full-of-life country girl who spent more than 85 years within just a few miles of here. She spoke fluent Polish and was very comfortable in this special Polish community of Bremond that she called home. Christine was a caring, devout Christian, wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother and an important member of the Snider family

Aunt Christine was born on June 24, 1921 to Mike and Veronica Snider on a farm in Wooten Wells where she lived the first 20 years of her life. As a young girl, she often rode to church under a warm quilt in the back of a horse-drawn buggy. Later her Dad got a model T and eventually a Model A Ford. This was the roaring 20’s era. When Christine was 8 years old when the entire country was plunged into the great depression. Hard work and doing without material goods got the family through it.

In 1937, tragedy struck the Mike Snider family. At the time, Christine was barely 16 years old when her mother died of pneumonia leaving the responsibilities for caring for the household and taking care of two younger brothers, Louis and Lee squarely on Christine’s shoulders.

In 1940, Aunt Christine was courted by a young man named Frank Knapik and they were married on January 23, 1941. The young couple set up housekeeping just a short distance from the Mike Snider farm during the time Hitler’s war was raging in Europe. Frank and Christine started off marriage with few resources. As Christine laughingly described the early days of her marriage, "It was a year or two after we married before we had a piece of a car. In those days, we was working for 75 cents a day and didn't have a steady job. We put in lots and lots of hard work. When we laid by, we had to go and help our neighbors. Me and Frank didn't have a car so we went to church and town with Daddy." "In those days, mighty few peoples had Christmas trees. Most of the time, we just throwed stockings on the bed for the kids." As Christine’s husband, Frank once described their first home, “You didn’t have to go outside- you could count your chickens through the cracks in the floor”!

As World War II drew to a close, the Knapik family moved to a sharecropper’s shack on the banks of the Little Brazos river. But it was home for Frank and Christine and their three children, Raymond, Al, and Cathy. In the late 50’s, Frank went to work for Alcoa and the Knapik family moved into an older Victorian-style home just a few blocks from here. Finally, Christine could have a real yard and flower beds without chickens. Economically, the Knapiks prospered and Christine was able to devote more time to her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Her home was always open to the needs of her family.

Special events in Christine’s life every year included visiting with her relatives at the annual Church Bazaar, visiting with her sisters and brothers and seeing everyone at the Snider Family reunion. Aunt Christine retained her keen mind and sharp wit throughout her old age. At her 82nd birthday celebration, Aunt Christine proclaimed she wasn’t fooled for a minute by the surprise birthday celebration planned by her family at the Coal mine. She completely loved all the attention surrounded by her family and yet another opportunity to visit with her relatives.

SPECIAL MEMORIES OF AUNT CHRISTINE

• Aunt Christine’s wonderful smile and her Snider sense of humor.
• Christine’s special way with the English language and her special laughter and expressions like “Goll-lee” and “peoples”.
• Her southern hospitality- You couldn’t visit her home without Christine offering to serve dinner
• Her neatness was another of her special characteristics-her home and yard was always immaculate.
• Like her sister, Connie, Aunt Christine loved flowers and filled her yard with flower beds. She especially liked pink flowers.
• She loved visiting with her sisters, Willie and Connie at every opportunity. They could go for hours on end, laughing and talking in Polish and broken English sharing the latest news about everyone they knew.
• Aunt Christine was always proud of the accomplishments of her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren and displayed their latest pictures around the home.
• She was also proud of her home. As you entered her home through a Victorian-style screened in back porch, you always got the grand tour of her home which was always so neat with everything in its place.
• Aunt Christine always appeared much younger than her age. Even in her declining years when she was confined to a wheelchair, she was a very classy lady.
• We shall always remember Aunt Christine’s enthusiasm for life, her sparkling eyes, her wit, charm and kindness and love of family and God.

Christine is survived by two sons, Raymond “Yogi” Knapik of Hearne, Al “Winky” Knapik of Bremond and one daughter, Cathy Knapik Penick of Bremond; eight grandchildren; and 11 great-grandchildren, and a brother, Louis.

I suspect Heaven is a buzzing with the reunion of yet another Mike Snider family member.
Aunt Christine was buried on Thursday, December 14 at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Bremond.
